Steering & Suspension Services in Lubbock, TX
Steering and Suspension Explained
With so many more visible car problems and issues to address when servicing a vehicle, it can sometimes be easy to forget about steering and suspension systems. However, these are critical parts of your car's chassis and maintaining them is highly important for both a safe and smooth ride. The steering side is made up of the steering wheel, gears, linkages, and other components which help direct and control the motion of your car. The suspension side is aimed at supporting your vehicle's weight and absorbing the shock caused by the friction between the wheels and the road. The steering and suspension work together to help keep you in control of your car, facilitate the handling of the vehicle, and offer a smooth ride. They also impact other systems and parts such as your tires, and can cause misalignment or premature wornness.
Evaluating Your Steering and Suspension - When To Do It?
A faulty SAS system can add to alignment issues and greatly impact your braking distance, making for a very bumpy ride - literally. Therefore, if you feel like your car is hard to steer or handle, or if you feel a vibration in your steering wheel or excessive play, then those are signs that your steering and suspension systems need to be checked. Other warning signs include abnormal sway or lean in turns, excessive noise when driving over bumps, and uneven wear of your tires. As soon as you notice any of these symptoms, bring your car in for a check. You can learn more by contacting our experts at Meineke #1903 in Lubbock, TX.
How SAS Evaluation & Repair Works
Having your steering and suspension properly serviced can save you a lot of money down the road as it could help eliminate uneven and premature tire wear, as well as alignment issues. Our certified technicians will conduct a thorough evaluation of your vehicle, including inspection of all struts, shocks and springs to determine any signs of wear or damage. Based on the results of the evaluation, we will prepare a detailed repair plan for you and go over all options, such as replacing or repairing parts, so that you can approve the entire process beforehand. When certain parts of the steering and suspension are replaced, existing wheel angles may change, so we always recommend wheel alignment with any SAS repair service.
